ouise Nichol shares her TOP Privilee spot and why it’s her family’s all-time favourite

We’ve been Privilee Members for years now and love exploring new venues across the UAE, but there is one venue that we just can’t get enough of… Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah!

Here is what we love:

2for1 Privilee Vouchers

With Privilee's 2for1 offers we can now lean into the (adult) fun even harder, enjoying two bottles of wine for the price of one at our favourite spot while the kids swim out to the diving platform in the sea. 

We’ve also tried the 2for1 buffet breakfast a couple of times, which went down a treat! The variety is huge, the children love the pancakes and me and my husband like trying a bit of everything. It’s only AED 155 for two - and under 12’s eat free so you really can’t go wrong. 

Browse Privilee Vouchers here.

Beachside dining 

We save 20% on food and drinks here, so will always treat ourselves to a late lunch or snacks to tuck into on the beach - they do a mean tuna poke bowl!


The kids love hiring a kayak from the hotel (flash your Privilee app for 10% off), which I then paddle over to one of the Palm fronds opposite and back. I find I paddle harder when I know there's a nice glass of vino and a sun lounger waiting for me!

Late-night swimming 

The pool at the Waldorf stays open until 8pm, which means we can enjoy the cooler evenings and the children love swimming in the dark when the lights come on, it feels really magical. 


On a boring but highly game-changing point, the hotel's underground self-parking is really handy for direct pool access - no need to traipse bodyboards and dripping wet kids through the fancy lobby, you can get in and out really quickly. See you there!
